    I just added 5 of these to a friend's McMurray order. I was wondering if anyone had any of the Silver Penciled Rocks and if they were the same disposition as the Barred Rock?

    Any from McMurray?

    No idea, sorry.

    Bumping you up, though.

    There's another thread with virtually the same title https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=114105 -- I think someone in that thread mentioned having (or maybe it was having ordered) some from McMurray. I'm keeping my eye on that discussion in hopes of having someone besides McMurray to buy from when I'm ready.

    I would think that that they would be about the same however the barred are a more commercial bred.

    Hey, CC! I'm the one that started the other thread. I'm outside of Murfreesboro. Hello, neighbor!
    Keep me posted if you find standard pencilled rocks, will you? I think they're so pretty!

    Quote:I'll do that! I may just order some from McMurray this spring even if I can't keep them -- it seems I wouldn't have too much trouble finding them a good home once my property sells. [​IMG]
